In painting, what do you call the use of strong contrasts between light and dark?
Chiaroscuro is the dramatic effect of contrasting areas of light and dark in an artwork, particularly paintings, to achieve a sense of volume in modelling three-dimensional objects and figures. It comes from the combination of the Italian words for "light" and "dark."
